Chelsea chief Peter Kenyon says they're staying calm over their pursuit of Real Madrid winger Robinho.

"One of the key issues over buying Robinho has always been that Real Madrid are looking for a replacement," explained Kenyon to the club's website.

"It is fair to say that is what has been holding up discussions between the two clubs.

"It has not progressed over the last couple of days but the window is open until the end of August so there is still plenty of time to run."
